"It's still not quite the way it was, but you promised me this is love to stay. Watch the hospital that's just across the street from your apartment balcony. I'll never ever leave there." -Hospital, by Lydia.
I'm fifteen,and I have a lot to bitch about. My life is an open book. I love music, I love food, I love my friends, and I love the town I'm in. Not much else to say, except what I post, so. c:
#tbt: Buddy Holly — Weezer
I’ve been channeling 16yo-me today and I hope you guys can appreciate it as much as I’ve been.
Weezer dropped their self-titled debut album (The Blue Album) in 1994, and it included such hits as “The Sweater Song,” “Say It Ain’t So,” and “Buddy Holly” (which was actually released on Buddy Holly’s 58th birthday). Influenced by powerhouse bands like Nirvana, Oasis, and the Pixies, these guys can stand on their own and make their fans fall in love with them with each single.
Guitar riffs and drum beats aside, Weezer melds together an American classical rock with old-school British indie rock, producing some of the most memorable sounds — I mean listen to that instrumental jam in the last minute of the song. Their pop geek-punk sky-rocketed the album in its stature, making it "one of the most important debut albums of the [the 1990s]" and giving rise to Weezer’s status as one of the iconic 90s bands. Enjoy y’all.
For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.

Interpol - All The Rage Back Home
The NYC stalwarts have returned with a new video, which opens like a hydrangea, slow and melancholic, before blooming into a thing of energetic beauty, with riffing guitar at its back and Paul Banks’ singular croon at its core. It’s driven, with rises and falls, with bouts of wistfulness, with a subdued sense that it’s all barely being kept under control.
In short, it’s Interpol — and it’s a great lead-in for El Pintor, their fifth album, due September 8th.
